Question about shields

Ok, so what are the rules for shields? Am I allowed to have a wooden one? Or is it meant to be entirely EVA foam? I just need clarification on this, as I’ve heard mixed things and I don’t want to hit the field for my first time and be denied the used of a shield I’ve made.

It’s all foam. No hard edges.

The advice from the gurus seems to be to buy one rather than make one… but here’s a video of a noble navarri making one!

The rules on shield construction are here

They strongly recommend you make them entirely of foam.
